Records of the College of Arts and Sciences

 

This collection includes administrative files (constitutions, assembly meeting minutes, annual reports, etc.) as well as program files (mostly program proposals) and publications of the College and Arts and Sciences.

The records of each academic unit in the school are also included. Because of its large size, the records of the history department are inventoried separately.

Some of the records of the College of Arts and Sciences can also be found online in OUR@oakland.

The collection includes information on the development of the Kettering Magnetics Laboratory. Additional information can be found in the University Archives Buildings File and the Durward B. Varner Papers.
